Stamp reads “Jerrems, Photographic Artist, 71 Harp Road, E. Kew, Vic., 3102. 85-1630.” Provenance: Anne Summers.

Held in NPG (Canberra) with the comment “This photograph by Carol Jerrems is one of several she took of Summers in January 1974, at which time Summers was working intensely on her first book [Damned Whores and God’s Police: the colonization of women in Australia, Penguin Books, 1975.] Summers has said the portraits capture her anxiety and despondency as well as ‘the steeliness which would ultimately see me through this period and be able to finish the book’.”
